Notes and Editorial Reviews

This album marks the conclusion of Soren Nils Eichberg’s residency with the Danish National Symphony Orchestra- a fruitful cooperation that has resulted in a handful of large-scale works, born of Eichberg’s keen exploration of the orchestra. In place of the thematic formality of its predecessor, Symphony No. 3 looks far out, asking looming existential questions to which there aren’t always clear answers. As a counterweight, the even more symphonic ‘concerto for orchestra’ Morpheus revels in color and effect, brining a sense of joy and discovery to the music. Soren Nils Echberg was born in 1973 in Stuttgart, Germany, and grew up in Denmark. He was appointed the first composer in residence in the history of the Danish National Symphony Read more Orchestra in 2010. He currently lives and works in Berlin. Read less
